Hi everyone....new here


Hi everyone,

My name is Natasha, I'm 19 (turning 20 very soon) and attending university in PEI, Canada. I just found out last night that I may be suffering from social anxiety disorder. Since that time I've been researching the subject at every available opportunity, and in the process stumbled upon this site.

I'm very pleased to see that there is a support forum for people suffering from social anxiety disorder with such a large member base! (Over 10,000...wow).

I'm still unsure whether I suffer from SA or just extreme shyness, and hopefully someone here can help me clear that up. It seems the line dividing the two is rather fuzzy! I do plan on visiting a campus counsellor (not that I really want to, but now that my boyfriend knows I may have SA, he won't let me avoid going lol) to seek help and find out more.

I hope I can get to know some of you better (I feel at home here already), and that we can have some interesting discussions together.

Natasha

This is a very active group that can offer a ton of support since SA does have a lot of fizzy areas, counseling is what helped me clear some of those areas up,especially when it comes to secondary disorders like depresson, so I hope it does the same for you! Welcome!

just one more song to slay this earth
and i can't explain myself just what it's worth
it was all i had, but not all i'd need
and i can't escape the fact that i still bleed

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
